Dear Prayer Partners,
For the next couple of weeks I will out in the bush assisting a UK Summit team with a water project for the Ga-dang people up north.
Please pray for safe travel. †This will involve a 12 hour bus ride (just for myself as the team will fly the next day), another three hours by van, one hour by jeepney, and then 3-4 hours of hiking with supplies (during rainy season).
Please pray specifically for the UK team that they would be open to all the Lord has to teach them over these next couple of weeks, for myself and other missionaries involved that we could be a blessing to one another, to the UK team, and to the Ga-dang people who are only now seeing the gospel preached in our actions (Mark 9:41).
Please pray also for our provisions.† I myself and hoping to raise enough funds to cover travel and supply expences (roughly $200) as well as something extra to contribute towards the overall cost of the project ($3500), although praise God some of those funds have already come in (sorry I am not yet aware of what that amount is).
Please pray for my wife & daughter who will be staying behind here in Manila, but staying busy still with the local church.† Cirena will be teaching Sunday school this coming weekend.
Praying you all had a wonderful 4th and so grateful for your prayers and support.
Love in Christ,
Robert & Cirena Smith
